Exfoliate for glow, and let your skin shine

Having a radiant complexion is key to any successful makeup look. But a beautifully glowing base takes more than just clever makeup application. By taking proper care of your skin, you can be sure your makeup will always look its very best. A good skincare routine can also mean you have to use less product to achieve that dewy base.
One absolutely essential skincare step for a brighter and smoother complexion is exfoliation. By removing dead skin cells and debris from the skin's surface, you'll help reveal the newer, brighter and more youthful-looking skin below. By pairing your fresh and bright complexion with a light coverage base product, you can achieve a perfect yet still natural-looking base.

A stacked braid is what it sounds like, one braid stacked on top of another. The bottom braid is usually a little more flowy or loose, while the top braid is structured and tight. This creates a fun contrast.
